E3 2017 has ended and boy are we in for a treat in the next coming months, all the way to 2018! Sony, Microsoft, EA, and Nintendo dropped a lot of new content and information for upcoming games that they are working on. I don’t even know where to start, there’s sooooo many great games that were previewed last week. For starters let’s talk about Anthem, EA’s new open-world shooter that is set to launch in Fall of 2018. This shooter takes place in the future where you and your friends play as freelancers who explore life outside the safety of civilizations gates for loot based rewards. The players are outfitted with exosuits that have unique capabilities and weapons that can be customized based on the players play-style. I personally can’t wait for this one to come out. It reminds me of a mash up between Titanfall and Call of Duty. Speaking of Call of Duty, Sledgehammer Games dropped a lot of info on this year’s Call of Duty which takes place in World War 2. This is my go to game every year and this one I am most excited for. This year’s COD is going back to its OG roots; that’s right boots on the ground! The COD Community has been asking for boots on the ground for years now and this year it’s finally coming back. Call of Duty WWII is going to bring back the true grit and darkness of World War II. The graphics look amazing and the sounds of the guns/atmosphere are unbelievable. In the multiplayer reveal that was premiered at E3 you saw a bunch of new killstreaks that looked devastating. I can’t wait to use the B-17 Ball Turret Gunner or the Fighter Pilot strafe run. I CAN’T WAIT! Those weren’t the only highlights of E3 that wowed the gamer community. How about the reveal of Star Wars: Battlefront 2 set to release November 17, 2017! This year’s installment has a campaign mode which was widely asked for by fans. I have no idea how the last one got off charging fans 60 real dollars and not having a campaign mode. The game looks sharp combining all the generations of Star Wars. The multiplayer gameplay that EA released looked like organized chaos in a good way! So much was going on and I couldn’t help but take in all the nostalgia. The game looks like it will be much better than last years. Let’s talk about God Of War 4 from Sony which is set to release in early 2018. Santa Monica Studios has built a cult classic with the God Of War series and this year’s installment is looking to be no slouch when it comes to action. Set after Kratos has slayed all of the Greek God’s after their dishonesty of releasing him from his personal torment. The 4th installment has Kratos taking on Norse mythology. From what I gather from the trailer is that Kratos will not be alone on this journey as he acts as a father figure, mentor and protector to his son Atreus. The gameplay trailer looked incredible, Kratos has a battle axe and shield as his new weaponry, trading in the iconic Blades Of Athena. As usual Kratos will be taking on all types of enemies from big to small. This title lets everybody unleash their inner warrior! Last, but certainly not least Madden 18! Now I can hear the groans already about how stagnant the Madden franchise has been. It’s truly unbelievable that Madden is the only thing we have for football games during the year *cries in NCAA * BUT it looks like this year Madden is bringing the heat by using the world-renown Frost Bite Engine. Although not a lot has been released about this year’s installment, EA showed a trailer of Madden 18’s Longshot game mode and it blew me away. It looks as if Madden is bringing back the much-loved Superstar mode. The Longshot gameplay starts you as the protagonist Devin Wade who is a fallen star who is trying to play his way back into the league. I don’t know about you but im hype for football to come back. Madden is set to be released August 25th 2017. Let us know what games you’re looking forward to in the comments below!
